...and there won't officialy be snow this Christmas time in Africa...

... For as you can see by the map I've provided, Northern Africa is of an Equatorial climate and thus is too warm to snow any time of year

Meanwhile, the rest of Africa is in the Southern Hemisphere, where, in fact, it is summer time, thus obviously, again... no snow.



No word on wether or not Africans do, in fact, know wether it is or isn't Chirstmas time at all.

" And the Christmas bells that ring there Are the clanging chimes of doom "

How can a bell both "clang" and "chime"?

actually, there is snow all year round in the mountain ranges in Africa, except because of global warming, the snows of Mt. Kilamanjaro in Tanzania are melting.

This isn't funny, it's actually quite serious.

Africa is more complex than we think.

"Its a joke." says beli, former Oxfam employee, Midge Ure lyric drooler, original band aid / live aid watcher, and southern hemisphere weather aware person.

Some of the jokes made in the social justice industry would make your toes curl.
